The Republic of Auranoria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 306 million Auranorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Auranorian economy, worth 22.9 trillion Zeemarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,915 Zeemarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space'. Crime is totally unknown. Auranoria's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Auranoria is ranked 53,726th in the world and 1,688th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,961.54 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
